See what Dharma clients have to say
“I must say that working with Dharma has been a real pleasure. You have supported us like a partner 100%. Your company has been extremely attentive to our needs and timelines. On behalf of PRMC, thank you to your team!” – Mark Keller, Prather Ranch Meat Company
"Unlike other merchant service providers, the team at Dharma is easy to get in touch with! I love knowing that they have my back and will work hard to make sure I have a great experience with them. We chose Dharma Merchant Services because of their commitment to sustainability and social justice, but will stay with them for their excellent customer service!" - Tracy Puhl, GladRags
"Well, our mom and pop lodging business moved over to Dharma in early 2014 from a past Merchant Maverick #1 that is no longer in that position, and I must say we are thoroughly delighted with Dharma. Dharma is a value player. They are fair, straightforward and are pleasant in communications and that’s what all businesses need, and should strive to be in their relationships with customers/clients. Don’t be fooled by cheap, as cheap gets what cheap gives and Dharma rises above such shell games and trickery. Bottom line: we saved money by switching to Dharma and after 15 years in business have finally found comfort with our move and new Dharma relationship." - Ernest Stahl, Sleepy Hollow Motel
"Dharma has, hands down, the absolute best advertising and sales transparency I’ve seen anywhere in the industry. They only use interchange-plus pricing, and they have no early termination fees, no annual fees, no monthly minimums, no application fees, and no added PCI compliance fees. I’m not sure how they manage to make any money, especially considering that they dedicate profits to charity. No one is getting filthy rich here. The people at Dharma make an honest living, and live with respect and integrity. And did I mention that they’re a certified green business and B-corp? I mean, come on. These people simply rock!" - Amad Ebrahimi, Merchant Maverick
